DIRECTV C41 GENIE Mini Client for HR34/HR44

The C41 (and its predecessor, the C31) are client devices that only work with the DIRECTV HR44 Genie Home Media Center DVR and its predecessor, the DIRECTV HR34 Genie and the non-DVR H44.

These units, each called a "Genie Mini," brings most of the capabilities of the Genie (HR44/HR34/H44) to up to three other rooms in your house. And it's small. It can even be mounted behind your flat screen TV, so you'll never see it.

You can attach up to five C31s/C41s to your Genie, but only three can be used at any one time. So we recommend just having a maximum of three C31s/C41s attached. If you need to supply more TVs, we recommend the H25, which can use its own tuner.
